What The Frigging WHAAAAAAAAA?! So it can work in reverse afterall, that is to say, the meme circles back to eat its own tail by intruding on Lucky Star's territory.

The music is Bokurano's OP, which is a very nice song but... it feels as though the person just randomly stringed several scenes together without giving a thought to apply a theme or even try to apply the scenes to the lyrics in the song.

Bokurano is a rather bleak and gloomy psychological anime. If he had satire the OP with ironical scenes from Lucky Star, it might have been a winner, but alas... wasted potential.

Natch.

Actually, I loved that Bokurano parody. Sure I'm a bit biased as I think Uninstall is the best OP for the season, but if you look closely Skane, they followed closely the original OP. That is...

Uninstall - Logo for both
Ano toki.. - Landscape of the city, though to be fair we don't see Konatas back but...
Bokura no... - We get a close up of the robot, but now we have a closeup of Konata looking at the raining landscape from the previous scene (ano toki...)
Mimi wo Fusaidemo... - People walking
Hosoi karada... - Close ups of the main characters
Unintall Uninstall - Robot shooting missiles, LS having VF match
Kono Hoshi... - Original has someone running, but we have Miyuki walking. Would've been better IMO if they chose the scene that had Kona running
Inochi no... - A girl opening a van door, Kagami opening a classroom door
Hitotsu da to.. - Original has person walking and looking over his shoulder, switch to another person looking back, then a girl watching the rain. LS has Akari closing the door, Miyuki looking back after turining the light off, then three of them walking. Admittedly a poor transition.
Uninstall - Girl walking through a road(??), girls walking through a train entrance
Osore wo Shiranai.. - Another bad transition. Its just the three girls in the train, when the original has two peoples backs to the screen (though to be fair, they're probably talking as well)
Senshi no.. till end - Original has more close ups of the other main characters. LS has more closeups of the gang.

Admittedly, the bad transitions are just due to the lack of LS screens to match the original, which is obvious since its after 'Inochi no..' that the creator was having problems. It should'nt be a problem once the series is over, assuming the creator is willing to make a version2.

That said, it still gave the feeling of the original OP. That sure, there's some action involved, but most of it was just the main characters doing every day stuff. I mean, whoever sees Bokurano's OP would never think its a psychological drama/thriller. XD

Well, as I said, I like the song, but a song alone does not an AMV make. Matching scenes is one thing, but most people fail to capture/match the mood. More so in this case, since the themes of Lucky Star are virtually polar opposites of Bokurano's.

Even if it was meant to be satire, it would still fail, because there was no sense of irony in it. Hence my comment about wasted potential.

To put it one way, the AMV is better if I just close my eyes and listen to the song.

Cheers.

A lot of people seem to do these polar opposite things now that I think of it actually. This one Hokuto No Ken video with Hare Hare Yukai played over it, did not work. Maybe some people think they can plug square pegs into circular holes, I'm not sure. I think the song here matches the flow of the scenes for the first 30 or so seconds and then the footage just can't fit anymore. Not that the depressing theme of Bokurano's opening fits the theme of Lucky Star from the get go. I think if one were to watch that for the first time without ever knowing the true opening to either show they would know something is amiss. I think the person who did it deserves an E for effort. At least he didn't just try to overlap the song with the dancing opening like some others, he actually compiled some clips and I've tried this and it takes a lot of time.

I might hazard a guess that you can't see the forest for the trees.

Think about it; let's compare the Bokurano OP LS style to any of the AMVs that parody the LS OP using other series' characters (or even RL people). For simplicity's sake, let's take the AMV where they use Rockman characters. What was the creator of the Rockman AMV doing the SHnY ED/LS OP dance steps trying to do? Was he trying to show the underlying themes of Rockman in the AMV? Was he doing a satire by showing some sort of irony between the two?

No, he was just making an AMV that imitates what is being shown in the SHnY ED/LS OP by using Rockman characters. Nothing more, nothing less.

Same thing with the Bokuran OP, LS style.

The creator was just making an AMV that imitates what is being shown in the Bokurano OP by using Lucky Star characters. Nothing more, nothing less.

I really think you're thinking too much into this by trying to find a deeper meaning to the AMV when there really is none. That Bokurano OP AMV is really just a parody; they really weren't trying to do something with it. As someone wise has said before, 'Sometimes a boot is just a boot.'

The Rockman AMV was a straight out parody using elements FROM Rockman, set to the Midi-beat of LS' OP.

He did not use the original score, but retained the spirit of Rockman by using a Midi-theme; and he succeeded in faithfully recapturing the elements of the LS' OP in his AMV, something that this Bokurano AMV failed to do (in terms of recapturing the elements of Bokurano).

If one has watched both OPs, then that one can immediately associate the Rockman AMV with LS with ease. The mood is there. If one then watches the Bokurano AMV, it will fall flat, because there is nothing Bokurano-ish about it (aside from the song), NOR LS-ish (in terms of mood/essence). It FAILS on both accounts.

To use back your line, sometimes a failure is just that. A failure.

It has nothing to do about finding a deeper meaning. If I wanted "deep" AMVs, I wouldn't be watching parody AMVs for it. AnimeMusicVideos has a very nice selection of "deep", or rather, "serious-themed" AMVs.

Cheers.

First incarnation of a Lucky Star/Nursery Rhyme mashup. Not too shabby.
